I highly recommend Dr. Shea and the allergy drop treatment. After suffering from chronic and almost daily hives for 12 years and despite going to some excellent doctors who simply had no treatment for getting rid of this condition, I had almost given up. Then I heard about allergy drops. I am amazed at the results. My hives are almost completely gone after 6 months of allergy drops. My late father was an allergist so I was accustomed to the best of care and that is exactly what I’ve gotten from Dr. Shea and his entire staff. Starting with Karen at the front desk with my first phone call, and Chandra with my initial intake, and then Dr. Shea at my initial appointment, I have been treated with kindness, caring, and an individualized approach. I have not had this kind of care since I was under the care of my own father, before the advent of allergy drops. I am so appreciative of Dr. Shea and his staff and this easy and effective treatment.

I can’t begin to tell you how much Dr. Shea and his staff have helped me. I liked that he tried everything he could before suggesting surgery for my sinuses. Even after surgery I feel like a new person with a better outlook on life. I was afraid because I was told how terrible sinus surgery recovery can be but I can tell you even now, two days after, I feel great. I just can’t stress enough how amazing everyone is at this office from the front desk to the exam room.

He performed my balloon sinuplasty a year ago, and I haven't had to see him since because I have yet to get a sinus infection since the surgery. He's also the only doctor who has been able to figure out my allergies! His under-the-tongue allergy drops are far better than making multiple trips for allergy shots, like I've had to do for several years when I was younger! I appreciate that he also suggests natural, over-the-counter remedies and supplements. I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Shea has been my life saver. The last two years have been miserable during ragweed season. I would be put on steroid pills, inhalers, nebulizer and antibiotics. My family physician told me I had asthma. After the testing with Dr. Shea I discovered I only have food allergies. With the Allertol food drops and his guidance I have been allergy free this season. No nasal drainage, coughing or sneezing. If you suffer from allergies please contact his office for an appointment. Great doctor!

My family and I have been seeing Dr. Shea for YEARS. That alone should speak of the quality of care Dr. Shea provides! He is an EXPERT in his field and has been a blessing to resolving issues each of us have had with our ears and sinus issues! His staff is knowledgeable and each and everyone you come in contact with will treat you like family. We love Dr. Shea and his entire team and would be lost without them!

Dr Shea is a great doctor with excellent bedside manners and knowledge. I was referred to Dr Shea in an emergency with suspected Tonsillar abscess. He was not only accommodating but compassionate about my situation. Thankfully it didn't turn out to be an abscess but he did recommend that I get my tonsils taken out. If I ever decide to do that, it's only going to be at Dr Shea's. I would highly recommend Dr Shea.

Dr Shea has been treating me for delayed food allergies with sublingual drops. I had been hospitalized 2 times for reactions besides many non emergency reactions, asthma flairs and IBS. I was told: 1. There is no such thing as delayed reactions. 2. Just avoid the foods you react to. 3. Carry an epi pen. The Doctors didn't know what was causing symptoms and reactions. With Dr. Shea's sublingual drops my rash on my face, head and chest are gone and no more wheezing from my throat tightening!
